Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

discover my true self
A question about this goal: what do u think is the 1st step in discovering your true self? September 3rd, 2005 08:54


Hej there, how are you doing on this?
Tricky one.. (;

For me being authentic with myself and others by telling the truth is a big part of the puzzle. try to be honest with emotions especially. try to BE HERE as yourself and make it that it is okay. then calm down and accept it, whatever it is that comes up(meditation helped me with this..)

The paradox part is that this is ALSO one most important things about ME to be honest.. it is THE WAY and SOMETHING i have found now.. funny, it seems so easy, but it took many years to find out..

I don’t know it this makes any sense for you, maybe you don’t really know until you are there.. just keep going don’t rush, you know when you get nearer ..
